I've seen a few threads for this in the past. But I want to be sure I won't waste my money on something that doesn't work. I'm planning a build using the Silverstone DS380, ASRock Rack EPC612D4I with a E5-2690 V4 using a 120mm AIO for cooling, and 8 12TB WD Gold HDDs for my array. I'm trying to find a HBA for this build that will actually fit into the case without giving up 1 of my drives. From what I've read it seems like if the HBA is shorter than 6in and has the connections on the top that may work correctly. If anyone has any leads on what HBA will work best for this build that would be awesome.

IBM M1015 and others will fit with a little persuasion :D

Great! I think I might actually have one around somewhere in my piles of enterprise crap lol and it supports 12TB drives no problem?

The M1015 and other LSI variants support everything - it was the early SAS/SATA HBA that only supported maximum 2TB drives. If you're using platter-based HDDs then the M1015/9211-8i still does sterling service.

I built one before, minimal trimming and it works.

Building my second now, trim and it works :)
